In that remarkable text, Forbidden Archaeology, by Cremo and Thompson, page 813, we find a photograph and description of a metallic sphere with 3 parallel grooves around its equator. The description states that the spheres are very hard and cannot be scratched, even by steel. Further, a professor of geology, A. Bisschoff, at the University of Potchefstroom, claimed that the spheres are 'limonite concretions'. The professor made this claim in spite of the fact that limonite has a Mohs’ hardness rating of only 4 to 5.5, which is considerably softer than the sphere. Additionally, he chose to ignore the 3 parallel grooves around the equator of the sphere.
Considering that this sphere and hundreds of similar ones have been found by South African miners over several decades in a Precambrian mineral deposit which is estimated to be 2.8 billion years old, I think I can understand the professor’s position. To accept this sphere, and the other similar ones, at face value would require that he completely change is worldview. It is much easier to say that the sphere is limonite, even though it’s physical characteristics are not those of limonite. When I look at the photograph it is obvious to me that some intelligent, tool-using being created the sphere for some specific purpose, maybe as a ball for a ball bearing. Whether that being was human or not is another question. However, considering some of the anomalies to follow, I have no problem with believing that the sphere was created by humans almost 3 billion years ago!
